Thank you Eugene, I'll then go manually!
Followed your other suggestions to.
It's not truly a problem of notes but of cross-references ! … and it can be managed easily.
The more important thing you need is this regex:
So, if you play it as:
… and add a new note as here [new note 1]! … the only thing you need to do then is: update the CR! Cool!
Of course, inserting the CR will be always manual … but the numbering is truly automatic!!
1/ The "blue" numbering depends on what "red" footnotes I choose as target.
2/ You can create a reference to footnote "1", copy it and paste it where you want! [that's very cool!]
Note: in green, basic and true ID footnotes.
I am intrigued by this answer. Could you kindly elaborate:
1. How are you setting up the cross reference?
2. What are the clipboard contents being inserted in the GREP replace field?
I'll say how soon (if nobody finds it) but, even if I gave all you need to play, the more interesting here is to find what I had in mind!
I only and simply use what ID is able to do!
Just worked it out!
Not sure I completely understand all the regex in the 'find' field, but it is a very smart solution to cross-referencing a footnote!
The regex searches something that is not an anchored text block [the auto-numbering support] after a call note but only in current text [not in footnotes].
Why? because the op can add a new footnote and forget to add the anchored block. Here, it's just a "security"!
Of course, the op will need to launch it first time.
(?#^/) is just my signing as a grep comment [Master Jedi's hood & lightsaber - see my avatar]! Aha!
